• Flexible modular system of highly dynamic AL8000 linear motors

    Flexible modular system of highly dynamic AL8000 linear motors

    The new AL8000 linear motors supplement the Beckhoff drive technology portfolio by another innovative product series. In the three widths of 50, 80 and 130 mm, their modular design enables new solutions for linear motion applications in modern mechanical engineering.
  • XPlanar: Levitating 360-degree mover rotation

    XPlanar: Levitating 360-degree mover rotation

    The XPlanar movers can fly freely in two dimensions over the XPlanar tiles and execute lifting movements with a stroke of up to 5 mm. These system properties have now been enhanced by new software-based 360-degree mover rotation functionality.
  • XTS HMI Control: High-performance visualization with a single mouseclick

    XTS HMI Control: High-performance visualization with a single mouseclick

    The collision-free and independently movable XTS movers can be positioned dynamically on customer-specific track geometries. For the associated visualization, an application-specific HMI Control can now be created from an existing configuration with just one mouse click.
  • EL5072: Integrating compact, precise displacement measurement into standard control technology

    EL5072: Integrating compact, precise displacement measurement into standard control technology

    The EL5072 EtherCAT Terminal enables direct connection of up to two inductive displacement sensors, including transducers in LVDT and half-bridge designs or inductive angular position sensors in the RVDT version. Thus, precise position and distance measurements, e.g., in the context of process control or the control of joining processes, can be solved in a compact, finely scalable and cost-effective way.
  • PS9xxx: Buffer and redundancy modules for 24/48 V DC power supply

    PS9xxx: Buffer and redundancy modules for 24/48 V DC power supply

    With the new PS9xxx supplementary modules for the PS power supply series from Beckhoff, another efficient option is now available for avoiding machine and plant downtime and, as a result, increasing system availability.
  • TwinCAT Vision: Visualization using vision-specific controls

    TwinCAT Vision: Visualization using vision-specific controls

    TwinCAT Vision offers with the new TwinCAT HMI Control Package the option of integrating image processing into the TwinCAT HMI user interface. This includes an expanded image display control and a color control.
